Yaite Ramos Rodriguez aka La Dame Blanche will introduce you to the cuban musical culture at a workshop on Monday, September 17. Talking about the bridges between African ancestral music and classical music, she will offer you to the basics of her own culture: traditional afro drums, classical flute and spiritual dances – in a phrase, the Cuban Mix.
La Dame Blanche will also perform live at the Kum & Go Theater on Tuesday, September 18 – CLICK HERE for more information about the concert.
With her explosive mix of hip hop, cumbia, dancehall and reggae, the Cuban singer, flautist and percussionist Yaite Ramos Rodriguez, aka La Dame Blanche delivers a powerful and compelling sound which summons the spirits.
Before unfurling her costume Yaite has traveled a long and sometimes hard road. Everything starts in Cuba where she was born, in the heart of an awe inspiring musical cauldron on which reigns the figure of her father, Jesus “Aguaje” Ramos, an exceptional trombonist who is also the artistic director of the Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club. Family parties are gatherings of extraordinary musicians, the cream of Cuban music, to the sounds of thousands of songs and drums.
Today, she presents “Bajo El Mismo Cielo” her new album, produced by Marc Babylotion Damblé, French Beat Maker/Sound Engineer.
